A minor program is intended as an optional program that encourages coherence in the work that an undergraduate student undertakes outside his/her major field(s) of study. Most, but not all, minor programs are also available as majors.A student may complete one or more minor programs, normally in a field both academically and administratively distinct from his/her major. In Letters & Science, most minors require only five courses (Business Administration and Computer Science are exceptions). Minors are listed in the memoranda column at the bottom of a student's transcript but not on the baccalaureate diploma.All minors, including interdisciplinary minors, are available to all students regardless of their major, with the exception that students may not minor in their major. An interdisciplinary minor consists of courses offered by two or more schools or programs.
